WHY “SWAYY”

We’ve gotten a lot of questions about our name. Why Swayy? We thought hard about what we wanted to offer. We wanted to ease anxiety, offer convenience, promote confidence, and create community. Swaying is easy, effortless and fun. It’s movement and dance and action. Sway with an extra y is a little more unique.

And Swayy was born.

XO,
Swayy

BE ELECTRIC

We all have something electric inside of us. We’re magnetic and strong and colorful and fearless. But sometimes it’s hard to feel all of those things; sometimes it feels like those adjectives belong to other people—I’ve been there.

What’s helped me is connecting with other women, feeling confident in how I present myself to the world, and being engaged in my community. At Swayy, we want to embrace that electricity. If helping you find an outfit that you love or meet a new friend at school gets you there, we’re about it.

So talk to that new person, apply for that internship, set a personal goal, embrace ambition and kindness and adventure. Be electric.

XO,
Swayy

ABOUT US

Swayy is brought to you by myself (Rajya) and Clio. We’re juniors at UT Austin and started this less than a year ago. We never really thought of ourselves as entrepreneurs but rather identified a problem we really wanted to fix and decided to go for it. It’s been scary and rewarding, and we call Swayy our baby.

If you’re curious, we probably spend too much of our day drinking chai lattes and updating our Google calendars. We met while backpacking in the Galiuro Mountains for a week our freshmen year where we were literally picking each other up when we fell.

It’s been really special for us to have the opportunity to put our heart into something and see so many people excited about it and supportive of us. Thank you 🙂

Always feel free to reach out via email (info@shopswayy.com) or Instagram (@shop_swayy)! We love you all <3

XO,
Swayy

HOW TO

Swayy can be for whatever you need it to be. You can use it for the calendar where you can see the events on campus. You can view the collections to find items for a specific theme. You can sell or buy apparel with our new marketplace feature. Or you can just listen to our playlists or get inspired by pictures of other students.

We launched our marketplace feature after hearing a lot of feedback that people had old theme clothes they wanted to sell and that many girls wanted cheaper clothing options to buy. Upload your own clothes, browse other people’s options, and let us know what you think!

XO,
Swayy
